🙋🏻♀️Hi! I am Wen (or 汶).
I am in my 30s.
I am a piano teacher/music educator.
I love both the visual and performing arts (music performance, illustration, photography), travelling, and learning about cultures, history, and traditions.
I also enjoy reading inspiring books and watching inspiring (korean) drama. My latest craze is Dr John. Ji Sung's acting and characrer has inspired me to read When Breath Becomes Air.
I can read, write and speak fluent English and Mandarin.
I usually post spoilers on my Instagram. They also act as proof that I have mailed out the letter/postcard.
💖I am currently collecting postcards, washi samples and used postage stamps.
🥢Please do not send me food/things that will melt as I do not want the other things/content in the mail to be ruined!
🍹I only drink plain water due to health issues. So please do not send me tea or coffee.
🙅🏻♀️I am not a fan of Kpop, Hello Kitty, cats and birds.
✉Please use real postage stamps when you send me postcards/letters/items (no sticker label postage please if possible), as I really love and enjoy looking at the traditional stamps on the mails or postcards addressed to me. Each stamp tells a unique story!
I do not know how to appreciate the following so please do not send me these:
Hello Kitty, cats, birds, insects, horror, vulgar, nudes, creepy, dolls, gory, glitter, clowns, fog/mist
People doing strange things that I do not understand
Kiddish or reward stickers
Neon and ultra bright or loud colours
Scents, perfumes, scented candles, smoke smell
Tea leaves, tea bags, coffee, or other beverages

I feel strongly about rating. I always rate my partners in a timely manner to show appreciation for their efforts. If you are a non-rater, please stay far away from me. I will not tolerate such unappreciativeness.
I also try not to give a 3 unless necessary.
Supposed to rate a 3 or 1 but I did not do so:
|Type 1||Type 2||Type 3||Uncategorized|
